Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "Learning Revit Structure 2015 Tutorial," a course designed to provide engineers and architects with a functional understanding of the primary features of this powerful 4D Building Information Modeling (BIM) program used widely at all levels of professional design.
Revit Structure allows architects and engineers to design 3D models of buildings and their components, creating design plans along with a BIM database that is usable in all the stages of a building's lifecycle, from concept and design to construction and eventual demolition. Revit's powerful building models database produces highly detailed models, facilitating interdisciplinary collaboration and the production of client documents throughout the design process.
Infinite Skills' Learning Revit Structure 2015 Video Tutorial is a fundamentals course, providing students with a strong foundation for beginning to use Revit's tools for structural design in a professional workflow, including its capabilities for documentation, annotation, collaboration, and presentations.
Course author Tim Dundr began his career as an AutoCAD draftsman, and has spent nearly twenty years working in the fields of architecture and engineering, helping companies and individuals with implementing and training in CAD software. He has taught at multiple universities, including Kent State, educating students on CAD software from the fundamentals of modeling to advanced modeling concepts.
Dundr starts with the basics, introducing the Revit Structure interface and basic navigation, along with shortcut keys, using the ribbons, basic editing tools, and working with groups.
He then explores project setup, demonstrating how to create a project, and how to link in external files and manage synchronization with linked-in files.
The course continues with an exploration of Revit views, including section views, elevation views, and callouts.
Dundr then goes in-depth with different structural elements, explaining how to create columns and walls, foundations, structural reinforcement elements, beams and framing, and floors.
Other chapters explain documentation, worksharing, and creating and rendering presentations.
"This is a fundamentals course for Revit 2015. We'll start with an introduction to basic tools and then start with projects which teach Revit tools by working on some included project files," Dundr says.
"By the end of the course, students will be ready to start working on their own projects, and can use the course as a reference for using particular tools as their practice continues."
